The new Blogger

I finally gave in to progress and switched to "the new Blogger" this morning. It'll take a while to get everything back in place (especially as links now need to be added to a page element one at a time). If anyone sees things looking strange in the browser, I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know what you see and what browser you're using. (Thanks!)

As soon as I saw what Orange Crate Art first looked like in the new (or by now, semi-new) Blogger, I wanted to switch back. Line spacing was all awry, with any text after a block quotation squashed into ugliness. It's disappointing that this problem still exists so long — a year? longer? — after the introduction of the new Blogger. I found a solution here: Spacing Changes in Blogger Beta -3. All that's involved is a quick template HTML edit, cutting a line from one section and pasting it in another.

As they say on the Internets, Hope this helps.

Welcome to the new blogger; it's an adventure!

I think you'll like the new Blogger once you get used to it. The widgets are flexible and convenient. You can do just about anything in the "HTML/Java Script" widget.

Thanks for the encouragement, Jason and Genevieve. I just spent some time tweaking the date headers, which were enormous in Safari. I can see already how the widgets will be a welcome change from getting into the HTML to add, say, a link to a sidebar.
